“My name is Fernando, and  I have been studying for one year as an exchange student from Spain in a private Christian school called Downey Christian School through ECEP. The school has 400 students from Kindergarten to the Seniors, and its a lovely school. They also have foreign exchange students from everywhere which allows people to learn from different cultures and connect with people whom they can learn from.

I also had a really nice host family – my host dad James and my host brother Jarrett. They always treatefernandod me really good and made me feel like I was at home. They are both really funny, and we are always laughing together.  They have always supported me when something was wrong.  It’s been an amazing and unforgettable experience, and I had the best time of my life with all of you. I love this family, it’s going to be tough to leave you. I am so glad to be part of this family, and I have had an amazing experience in this school. I am definitely going to miss everyone.”

“Agata came to live with us in August. She quickly became a part of our family. We were able to share with her about our lives and she shared with us about her life in Spain. We are already planning a trip to visit her family in Barcelona.”
